History of Sydney Harbour Paint Co.

After finding old diaries of my grandfather, Fred Porter, who built many theaters in Australia, such as the State Theatre in Sydney and homes such as "Boomerang" in Elizabeth Bay, I discovered that there were a number of recipes for the making of Mediterranean washes. These diaries were an inspiration to me and I decided to produce improved versions, combining traditional methods and modern technology, which rectified the problems that were associated with these original recipes.

We have come a long way since then and now we proudly manufacture many traditional paints, as well as a range of technologically advanced zero VOC paints and unique speciality finishes.
